Ever thought that enjoying a warm plate of Nasi Lemak could contribute back to society? “The Malaysian” gives you that opportunity. Served by a local social enterprise known as Dignity at the heart of Sentul, this Nasi Lemak by Eat X Dignity is definitely tantalizing.
The fried sambal is out of this world, mixed a tiny bit of it with the coconut infused rice, this exquisite bitter-sweet sambal, finely ground is a taste you’ll never forget. “The Malaysian” also comes with a big piece of fried chicken – whichever part you desire –sprinkled with some curry powder. This juicy fried chicken is highly crispy on the outside and guarantees to satisfy.
It also comes with garnishes such as half a hard-boiled egg, cucumbers, and not forgetting your fried anchovies and peanuts.

Located at the ever-bustling food stalls of Peel Road is the up and rising famous Nasi Lemak Peel Road. Customer’s favourites are the wild boar curry, the crispy and scrumptious fried chicken, and the sambal sotong (cuttlefish in chili).
Never underestimate its flavourful mix of side dishes such as the stir-fried cabbages and the finely chopped long beans which pairs well with the mouth-watering curry potatoes and fried egg dashed with some light soy sauce.
They also have the legendary luncheon meat fried to perfection. Due to its popularity, they now have an air-conditioned space for their patrons, serving special drinks like umbra with sour plum.
5. Madam Kwan Nasi Lemak
As one of the all-time favourite dishes in Madam Kwan, its plate of Nasi Lemak offers great palatable delights from all its various condiments and sides.
The rich and creamy fluffy aromatic coconut steamed rice is served with chicken curry, piquant sambal ikan bilis (sweet and spicy anchovies paste), hard-boiled egg, acar and fresh cucumber slices.
Their special topping – the Dried Shrimp Floss, creates a taste like no other when the condiments and sides are chewed together. Not to mention, the chicken curry is robust with flavours as Madam Kwan blends the spices herself. We see that the price is well above market price but it’s definitely worth a try.
